What are synthetic opiates? Not the definition but drug names
Oxycontin, oxycodone, hydrocodone, morphine, darvacet
Thanks to the advent of modern chemistry it is now possible to mass produce opiates, which is what synthetic opiates are; opiates that are produced by manufacture. Natural opiates are the opiates that are extracted from natural plants.
Morphine for sure, I think codeine, methadone.
